Publisher Comments:

Respected Berlin illustrators Golden Cosmos celebrate the cultural history of flight in the latest title from Nobrow's popular Leporello series. A concertina book, High Times unfolds to reveal a bold fifty-four-inch panorama that can be read as a book, displayed on a mantelpiece, or framed as a beautiful print.

With their trademark bold use of color and adeptness for shape and form, Golden Cosmos lovingly recall humanity's quest to conquer the skies. Featuring everything from Icarus' mythological attempts to the revolutionary innovations of the Jet Age and beyond, High Times is perfect for lovers of history, technology, and art alike.
